|The new CBL community site replete with two Mercy challenges|
* Mark Nichols has been working determinedly to bring The Challenge Based Learning Community site to fruition. It's a beauty. The site is utterly packed with top resources and it offers challenges that anyone can join. It includes forums for discussing CBL and a place where anyone can post a challenge and find teammates. It is gratifying to know that Mercy has contributed two of the challenges that seed the site. Along with my AP classes' "Strengthen Democracy" challenge (albeit a lite version) our pilot teams' "Design a Better Cafeteria Experience" may be found.
*The New Media Consortium's new research report is also available. Mercy, along with the other 19 schools in the pilot, were examined, and the analysis is now published online.
* The report may be accessed at the community site. But is also is available on the branded Apple site, where the a set of webinar resources may also be found. We now have some truly awesome go-to CBL sites.
Incidentally, I will soon be making up for lost personal time with CBL. In a month , I'll be launching my big 2012 project. Stay tuned!
